The SAS 871 is designed as a rear pad for Endurance GT Racing. It has a flat characteristics which enables the driver to be less aggressive when braking whilst still achieving improved stopping power.
SAS 871 racing pads are sintered for maximum durability. This process enables it to complete 24 hour endurance races such as the 'Le Mans 24 hours' without any pad change.
The less-aggressive style of the pad results in less overall load being delivered to the braking system (rotors, calipers, etc.) therefore increasing the longevity of all braking components and keeping the overall temperature as low as possible.
SAS 871 is commonly used in a combination with the SAS 964 for optimal braking balance in front-engine race cars.
